Incredible photographs of flowers shot under ultraviolet and infrared lights

The closest genre that Craig P. Burrows believes he specialises in is “alternative-light photography”, something that stems from an obsession with taking detailed shots of various objects under infrared, ultraviolet, and ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescent light.

In this particular series, the Californian photographer has experimented with a range of different flowers and plants that look almost alien under the different types of light. The methods he uses help to pick out the tiny details that the naked eye might not see, such as speckles of pollen or tiny hairs on petals.

Amazingly, Craig is completely self-taught, having come from an academic background mainly in physics and being co-owner of a small manufacturing business where he often picks up a camera to take product photos for sales and marketing purposes.

His ongoing works are part of a side passion project where he continues to experiment with different types of light and lenses. Every print he produces is available to buy via his website.
